On Monday’s post I mentioned how I use trips to Key West to stimulate my creativity. You guys came up with some other great ideas for creative stimulation. Here are some other suggestions for when you want to tap into your creative genius:
Read books series like Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.
Go to science fiction movies like “Matrix” and “Inception.”
Listen to classical music.
Listen to a different genre of music than you normally do.
Go out for dinner and coffee with people with different hobbies, nationalities, and jobs than you.
Read a foreign magazine occasionally.
Take a college course in something you know nothing about.
Go to Wikipedia and just start clicking on random links.
Switch your watch to your other wrist and eat with your non-dominant hand.
And finally, do some things you haven’t probably done since childhood. Order a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with chocolate milk (this is the only time you’ll see me suggesting you drink milk!), color something, or go play on a swing, trampoline, or jungle gym.
Next post I’ll give you another mental aerobics to exercise your right brain hemisphere.
